Leda Mox

November 16, 2023

Ever since she was a little girl, Leda Mox loved horses. Leda grew up on a farm, rode horses competitively, and even majored in equine science.  It seemed natural that Leda would want to make a living working with horses. She eventually paired her love of horses with her entrepreneurial spirit and started a thriving equine massage clinic in Becker, Minnesota. Now, Minnesota bureaucrats are saying she can’t teach others about equine massage—a subject in which she’s an expert—without approval from a government agency—an agency that knows nothing about horses or how to massage them. Leda is now teaming up with the Institute for Justice (IJ) to vindicate her First Amendment rights, and the rights of others like her.
